GolfBuddy World Platinum GPS
by Dominic Pedler
New generations of (pure) GPS systems continue to astound.
Among them a super sleek version of the Golf-Buddy World Platinum, called simply GolfBuddy World. Containing essentially the same features and 32,000 pre-programmed course library, the new model is primarily conceived for the Japanese market where only the very slimmest, sexiest designs will do.
“The World model has a different shape, texture and feel – but also an improved operating system with a choice of touch screen or push button operation and enhanced screen contrast for clearer viewing, especially in sunlight,” explains Jon Ennis, GolfBuddy’s European chief, who estimates a UK price-tag of £249.
